ECSC was started in 1965 by Kevin Cavey and originally called the Bray Surf Club. We are a group of Leinster based surfers travelling regularly for waves and craic. Most weekends our members head West and sometimes we arrange trips abroad. We have an online forum where members organise their own trips, arrange lifts, talk about equipment etc, and new members are very welcome. We welcome surfers from beginners to advanced. You can register for access to the forum at the link above – you’ll get a logon once you have applied for membership.

The East Coast Surf Club is situated around Dublin although we have members from all over the country. The Irish Sea is not known for its waves but given the right conditions it can produce some great swell!
We don’t disclose the locations of breaks online so if you are interested why not come along to one our socials. They are on the 2nd Thursday of every month – lately we’ve been meeting in O’Neills on Pearse St. around 8pm and you can find up-to-date details here. You can read about membership at the link above and either apply online or in the pub.
Ireland gets all the weather the Atlantic can throw at us which is a blessing for surfers though conditions can change fast. The coastline is dotted with inlets and coves so no matter what the weather you can be guaranteed some form of wave. Irish surfers
Out of respect for our fellow clubs and organisations we will not name any of their spots, but do feel free to plan a surfari around our coast, and enjoy whatever waves you may find, along with the odd sore head from the previous nights drinking session. Like anything in life… show respect and you shall receive it back triple fold… slán beo agus beir bua!
